Book Marketing and Self-Promotion Workshop

Thursday, 19 January 2012

I'm delighted to be running a workshop for the ACT Writers Centre here in Canberra this May. If you are in the area and want learn more about marketing and self-promotion for your work, come along! Details below. Places fill up fast so do book early.

 Book Marketing and Self-Promotion 
with Tania McCartney

10am-1pm, Saturday 5 May

This workshop tackles the issues of marketing your work, self-promotion and brand development, as either an author or illustrator. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how vital effective self-promotion is for authors and illustrators. It has been said that the difference between a ‘successful’ author and a not-so-successful one may soon well be in their ability to market themselves effectively.

Participants will learn about marketing both their work and themselves. They will learn how to compete in the market, how to make themselves and their work stand out in a saturated book world and how to do things with excellence and savvy.

They will learn about hosting readings and other events, the phenomenal marketing opportunities available online, brand development, and how to maximise their output for positive results.

This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in how to maximise their exposure as either a published or unpublished author/illustrator - for those who would like to make themselves stand out from the crowd, or who are a little lost in the internet/social networking fray.

The workshop also covers approaching publishers, so would be perfect for new authors/illustrators. It would also be ideal for people who are already published but feel they are not ‘getting anywhere’ on a publicity level.

Cost: $72 members, $64 concession, $102 non-members (includes 6 months of membership).
Venue: ACT Writers Centre workshop room.
